QUE vs PES: Possible Peshawar Zalmi Playing 11 for Match 2 of Pakistan Super League T20


Peshawar Zalmi Playing 11: PSL 2021 runner-up Peshawar Zalmi will begin their campaign against Quetta Gladiators on Friday evening at National Stadium, Karachi. In the last five meetings between the two teams, Peshawar Zalmi have won 4 while Quetta Gladiators have won just one and the former will be aiming to continue their dominance to get off to a winning start. When both teams last met, Peshawar registered an easy 61 runs victory over the Quetta Gladiators.

In PSL 2021, Peshawar Zalmi was 3rd on the points table after winning 5 and losing the other 5 matches before going down by 47 runs in the final against the Multan Sultans. On the opposite, the Gladiators had a forgetful campaign last season as they finished at the bottom spot with just 2 wins out of ten encounters.

Led by Wahab Riaz, the Zalmi boasts plenty of experienced campaigners in the likes of Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Ben Cutting, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Sherfane Rutherford, and others.
